DANICA MCKELLAR AND NEAL BLEDSOE SET TO STAR IN
GREAT AMERICAN FAMILY ORIGINAL MOVIE CHRISTMAS AT THE DRIVE-IN
NEW YORK, NY – September 21, 2022 – Great American Family today announced Danica McKellar (“The Wonder Years,” The Winter Palace) and Neal Bledsoe (“The Man in High Castle,” The Winter Palace) are set to star in Christmas at the Drive-In, premiering on the network this holiday season. McKellar is also executive producer for the film, her first original Christmas movie since signing a multi-picture deal with Great American Family. Christmas at the Drive-In reunites McKellar and Bledsoe following the successful premiere of The Winter Palace in January. Christmas at the Drive-In is part of Great American Christmas, the network’s holiday programming franchise which returns on October 21 with a new slate of original holiday movie premieres every Saturday and Sunday and Christmas movies all day and all night through the end of 2022.
In Christmas at the Drive-In, Sadie Walker (McKellar) is starting over in her hometown of Chesterfield, New York, following a series of major life disruptions that include leaving her law practice after losing her biggest case and no longer being engaged. Now a law professor at Chesterfield College, Sadie has no interest in ever pursuing law again until she finds herself fighting to preserve a cherished local landmark, Chesterfield Drive-In. Sadie is surprised to find out her passionate effort to keep the drive-in open has staunch opposition – the late owner’s son and Sadie’s childhood sweetheart, Holden (Bledsoe).
Executive producers of Christmas at the Drive-In are Brad Krevoy, Eric Jarboe, Amanda Phillips, Amy Krell, Vince Balzano, Jimmy Townsend, Danica McKellar, David Anselmo, Susie Belzberg Krevoy, Kathy Ceroni, and Don McBrearty. Supervising producers are James Mou, W. Michael Beard, Michael Shepard, Kelly Martin, Allan Fung, and Micheline Blais. Christmas at the Drive-In is written by Rick Garman. McKellar is repped by Matt Sherman Management and attorney Dave Ryan at FTSAMR.
